For the image processing LSI, the newly developed Venus Engine is equipped with the DMC-LX5 featuring even higher-speed, higher-performance while compiling the Intelligent Resolution technology. It enables the recording of beautiful photo and high-definition movie with higher quality signal processing. The triple CPUs in this imaging engine dramatically speed up processing while achieving exceptional noise reduction performance.
The Venus Engine's excellent energy efficiency supports long-time AVCHD Lite movie recording, and allows the output of both images and sounds via HDMI.
The Sonic Speed AF system in the DMC-LX5 includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance. You can quickly get moving subjects in focus, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.
The parallel processing of software resulted in ultra high-speed start-up.
The shutter release time lag is as short as approx. 0.007 second, making it easy to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities.
* The Intelligent Resolution function turns ON in the iA Mode or in some Scene Modes.
In other cases, turn ON the Intelligent Resolution from the menu to activate it.
You can cut out a clear still image from a movie in the camera thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology.
* The Intelligent Zoom function turns ON in the iA Mode or in some Scene Modes. In other cases, turn ON the Intelligent Zoom from the menu to activate it.
The graininess that results from picture noise and the flatness that sometimes comes with noise reduction measures are major concerns when shooting at high sensitivity levels. The Intelligent Resolution minimizes noise to produce sharp, clear images.
• ID–Security Li-ion Battery
The DMC-LX5 comes with a function to check whether the battery and unit can be safely used together. • Batteries made by other companies which have been certified by Panasonic may be used with these units, but we offer no guarantee as to the quality, performance or safety of such batteries. • Exercise care when purchasing batteries.
